One Day At A Time

We all have heard it. I am sure we all have tried it.
But do you really know what it means?

Sounds pretty easy ...Right?
Just for today. One day at a time. However you word it. It all means the same. But for me. I thought I knew what it meant. Stay in the now.

But I dont think I have ever really grasped the true concept of it.
Untill recently.

I am always thinking and planning ahead. Romaticizing the past.
How are we suppose to grow if we dont take all that into account?

But here lately. I have found my stress levels have lessened since I have been really practicing.
"One Day At A Time."

Stay in the here and now.
Forget about what you have to do tomorrow as far as worry and want.

Be in the moment.
Soak in today. Whats around you. Whats goin on now.

Just for today.
If you can make it today. Just for today and today only. You have made progress. And you can do it again tomorrow.

This has really helped me as far as quitting smoking has gone. And now I get it as far as using goes.
I am not worrying about month..or next year.

Now is all we are given. And tomorrow isnt promised.

Its hard to stay in today. But it is so much more peacful and calming to do it.
Whats your thoughts on staying in today?
Dont just count your days...Make your days count!

It may not get easier, But it will get better.
